Two airlifted to safety from speedboat
8:53am Tuesday 24th September 2013 in News
TWO people were airlifted to safety after a speedboat got stuck.
The coastguard was called just before 7pm yesterday after the boat ran aground close to East Mersea.
The boating enthusiasts did not have an anchor, radio and only one life jacket but were able to call 999 and the Clacton RNLI inshore lifeboat and RAF rescue helicopter from Wattisham were called.
The lifeboat crew tried to rescue them but was unable so they were airlifted to safety.
